We were chatting about helping other people work through difficulties. Sometimes you make progress but then reach a point where you hit a wall and there doesn’t seem to be any more shifting. In the time you take to stand back and gain some new perspective, the person may turn in a new direction for a moment, grab at something else momentarily and then suddenly the energy moves again and the breakthrough occurs.
And it may be they attribute all the success to this ‘other thing’.
So where does this leave us?
It’s so easy to feel hurt and a bit upset that they didn’t attribute any of it to you after all the time and effort you put in.
But looking at it from the wider perspective, they achieved the results they wanted. In the bigger picture one more person has gone to bed healed, happy and more at peace with themselves.
So what does it matter who actually brought it about?
And releasing our need to receive acknowledgment for any part we played in the process brings a great sense of acceptance and peace to us.
In healing and helping others, we are ultimately giving it to ourselves. And for me, at least, that is a beautiful outcome.
